Last night, Joe Biden was a three-letter word: J-E-R-K
Daily Caller ^ | October 12, 2012 | Jim Treacher

Posted on 10/12/2012 6:59:40 AM PDT by Zakeet

That was one of the weirdest debates I’ve ever seen. Paul Ryan was a precise, patient policy wonk, and Joe Biden was CRAZY GRANDPA, YOU WANT A PIECE O’ ME, SON??

I could scarcely even pay attention to whatever lies Biden was telling, so distracting was all his laughing and interrupting and flailing about. As Christopher Bedford puts it, he swapped out “hope and change” for “interrupt and laugh.” He was so obnoxious, I became convinced he was trying to goad Ryan into taking a swing at him.

[Snip]

My favorite moment was when the man who’s a heartbeat away from the presidency reacted to the prospect of Israel being engulfed in a nuclear fireball with a broad grin and a hearty chuckle. Great.

Well, if Obama thought his problem in the last debate was not being a cackling, bellowing, constantly interrupting dillhole, Biden really saved his bacon. If this steep escalation in hostility is any indication, Obama will open the next debate with a string of epithets and a diving elbow drop.

I was glad they started off with Benghazi, because I could actually pay attention to what they were saying before Joe went off the Amtrak rails. He straight-up lied and said the Benghazi consulate didn’t ask for more security. Or else he’s just so ignorant that he still doesn’t know they did. Or maybe he was in a blackout. Who knows.

As for moderator Martha Raddatz, I could tell she was really playing it down the middle when she asked Ryan if we should apologize for American troops urinating on Taliban corpses. Because that’s the issue. (Gee, why didn’t anybody think of that before they went and blamed some stupid YouTube video?) And she interrupted Ryan almost as much as Biden did. Obviously she got the memo.

From the American Thinker:

***********

His smile was frightening. For most of the night Joe Biden looked like the Joker — Nicholson not Ledger.

After 3 ½ years of Biden’s playing the fool, it is hard to remember he was once considered a serious man, a serious politician. But...Barack wasn’t looking for a serious politician — he wanted a court jester — and that’s what he got.

Now, after playing the fool for so long he has become the fool. Yet, in the debate he wanted to again be a serious man — or at least play one on TV. He clearly showed why Clint Eastwood called him the “intellect” of the Democrat Party.

Biden looked and acted like he was just released from the hospital. His face was pale and his eyes were bouncing.
He may have some serious medical problems.

Photoshop experts alert: how's this for an idea -- a "Jokers Wild" graphic with Obama as Ledger's Joker ("why so serious?") and Biden as Nicholson's?

Biden came off like he is rude, arrogant, condescending and stupid, because he is rude, arrogant, condescending, and stupid.

I’m surprised that Ryan hasn’t been called racist. he used the term “my boys.”

“Joe Biteme” acted as people have come to know him already (a condescending blowhard).

But when Obama tries to be aggressive, it’s going to backfire on him. His meanness is already becoming self-apparent to many.

He knows he’s up against the ropes and narcissistic psychopaths do not like to be not liked.

Obama is known as the giver of windy speeches, but not as an aggressor. Every time he gets aggressive, he blows it.

The independents in the middle are the key votes he needs and if he tries to pull a Biden, it’ll look ugly.

Biden? Not qualified!”

Why do you think Obama picked him in the first place - so that anyone who would try to remove him from office by means of impeachment, or otherwise, would have second thoughts.

Proverbs 29:2

“When a wise man has a controversy with a foolish man, The foolish man either rages or laughs, and there is no rest.”

New American Standard Bible (©1995)

Some translations use the word “debates” instead of “has a controversy”.

Rather appropriate for the Ryan - Biden controversy.

I will admit to wondering just how far a right hook could

Biden gave the liberal base some red meat while turning off the moderate swing voters. His performance last night did not play well in “fly-over country”. Obama and Biden must be in real trouble if they need to shore up their base at this point in the election cycle.

I wish the pundits would drop the term "crazy grandpa" when referring to Biden.

He certainly isn't "grandfatherly" by any stretch of the word, except maybe age.

A more apt description would be "crazy brother-in-law". You know, that obnoxious, boorish, know-it-all, opinionated, smirking, Obama-voting, conversation-hogging ass your dear wife is stuck with for a brother.

No disrespect to normal brothers-in-law everywhere....it's just that I have a soft spot for grandfathers who are generally wise, good-hearted and mellow.....unlike the shrewish, abhorrent, abominable, contemptible, despicable, disgusting, odious, repugnant, loathsome, nefarious Biden.

If people would remember, Nicholson’s joker, while mad, was absolutely calm and serious. Romero’s Joker was animated and rude. Joe’s performance reminded me more of him...........

I became convinced he was trying to goad Ryan into taking a swing at him.

Exactly. And Ryan was prepared. He didn't bite. He didn't get flustered.

I told the wifey that Ryan scored when he called Biden out one time and one time only. He drew attention to Bidens attention and moved on. Had Ryan repeatedly called Biden out, out gotten flustered he would have lost.

Ryan was outstanding.

It was difficult and distracting watching Biden smiling and laughing at inappropriate times. Many people are hurting because of their administration’s policies and Biden is laughing?

It was like he was manic. I think this is a bipolar aministration with Obama-depressive and Biden-Manic and we are all suffering because of it.

I was only able to listen to about 10 minutes of this poor excuse for a debate, but I quickly realized that I had seen these types of discussions as a kid growing up.

These discussions invariably ended up with somebody throwing a punch at the other guy and all he double L would break out.

Goad was the right word. He was trying to get Ryan to take a swing at him. The democrats are that desperate. Romney and Ryan may yet be arrested and sent to Gitmo. Could be why they needed all those bullets.

He was certainly trying to steam him up. Had Ryan taken a swing at him it would have made his day. I shouldn't have
made the statement that I did, however. I got a little too
emotional about it and am embarrassed that I said it now.

I knew a liberal who once explained that if you want to hurt someone attack them where they feel good about themselves.

That's what Biden did - his attack had nothing to do with issues or what was right, not right, might work or not... nope, Biden just wanted to stick it to Ryan - personally. Biden's a jerk.

How big a jerk? He was a bigger jerk than Al Gore with all his eye rolling and sighing... a bigger jerk than Clinton wagging his finger at the camera and lying about a teenage girl - I did not have sex with THAT woman... A bigger jerk than Clay Shirky bragging about elites on an O'Keefe video about the New York Times...

We're all sick of liberals and their attitude. If liberal want to show us how superior they can they can improve the economy - or put people back to work - or actually work at solving some of the problems we have. They could even create newspapers that win the respect and trust of their readers rather than self serving useless 'prizes' from Pulitzers or their 'type.... But no that's to obvious for the liberal jerk-offs - they want to do it with smirks, eye rolls, and attitude. Jerks. Stuffed shirt lowlifes.

Biden August 2008: I think I have a much higher IQ than you do.

"In addition to claiming he has a higher IQ than the questioner (unprovable either way without getting test scores for them both), Biden insisted that he had three degrees from college (when in fact he had only one, albeit that with a double-major.) He claimed to have been recognized as the "outstanding student" in his college political science department, when in fact he had only been nominated for an award (which he didn't win). Biden claimed to have had a full academic scholarship to law school, when he actually had only a half-scholarship based on financial need.

And most incredibly, at least to me, Biden also claimed to have graduated in the top half of his law school class. That was an incredible whopper, since he actually graduated 76th out of a class of 85--a class rank that reflected, but was not by any means the result solely of, the F he got in a first-year course after he was caught having plagiarized five times from a law review article in a class paper he submitted.

That plagiarism, of course, was dramatic foreshadowing to his plagiarizing from speeches of Labour Party Neil Kinnock, Hubert Humphrey and Robert F. Kennedy during his aborted bid for the 1988 Democratic presidential nomination."
